Makhani Grilled Cauliflower

{{totalReview}}
Makhani Grilled Cauliflower is a fuss free Indian vegetarian recipe that’s sure to fill you up. While a generous amount of butter and cream is used to make the velvety smooth Makhani sauce, fresh tomatoes and a fragrant mix of spices are added to balance out the rich flavors. The cauliflower itself is easy enough to prepare - no chopping is required as you only need to season it with black pepper, chili powder and salt before roasting it in the oven to get a lovely char.
